Abstract

The primary goal of this study was to examine the impact of perceived event prestige on volunteer satisfaction and commitment of volunteers at a globally prestigious sporting event. Two hundred two volunteers at the 2011 International Association of Athletics Federations Championship in Daegu, South Korea, participated in a survey. The results of two backward deletion regression analyses revealed event prestige was found to be a predictor of volunteer satisfaction and commitment; however, other variables (i.e., meaningfulness, perceived organizational support, training, and leader-member exchange for satisfaction and competence, meaningfulness, and training for commitment) play more important roles in developing volunteer satisfaction and commitment
